Flying Fish "Exit 8'
Flying Fish Brewing Company - Somerdale, New Jersey USA
Belgian Style Brown Ale (ABV 8.3%)

[Suggested Glassware: Snifter]


Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a very dark mahogany brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head, which reduced to a medium film with a medium collar and had fairly good streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a toasted dark bread malt, light resin hops and a leathery Belgian yeast with notes of molasses, caramel, dark chocolate, honey and a pronounced nutty odor.

The taste was malty sweet and a tad roasty with hints of molasses, honey and caramel at first, progressing into a slightly bitter yeast taste with a bit of chocolate, a nice chestnut presence and a little more than slight alcohol tinge at the end. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a dark bold yeasty taste left behind to fade away slowly.

Mouthfeel was medium in body and dry, yet thinly oily in texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall this was a very well rounded Belgian Brown with all the components working together rather well, creating a very appealing brew that was nice and roasty yet still possessed that Belgian Ale drinkability...
